What's Your Perspectrum Of Canada?....

A Thread About/For Anything Canadian...


Urban Dictionary: Perspectrum

The Urban Word - Perspectrum - The Spectrum of Perception..

" To understand what was going on in the world, Vin needed to imagine the whole perspectrum of humanity."

"I don't believe in keeping beliefs", said Cortexelus, "I rather take in the perspectrum of things"

My sentence using the Urban word, Perspectrum? ..Ur Perspectrum of Canada is Spectacolour!

__________________________________________________ ___

Here's some of my Perspectrums(Perspectrals?) of Canada using Canadian Flags...

- Here's Canada Now ..In my Personal View..(Perspectrum)

- Here's my own Personal Preference

- This Would be an acceptable Canada..

- I'd Settle for this Canada..

I call this one The " 80's Sport Sock " Canadian Flag...Posted for no particular reason at all..

So which one do you prefer?...If any..

Perhaps this one ...The tryed and tested

True Canadian Flag ...

What's your Perspectrum Of Canada ?

What would be your perfect Canada?..

What Do You like?

What Would You Change?

Complaints?

Canada is dysfunctional and personally I like it that way it keeps things interesting.
I wouldn't change much because that wouldn't be Canadian. I would change the
present government though but to what I don't know that is also Canadian. We do
not elect governments we throw them out that is Canadian. Preference, well a
preference is what you are used to and when Canadians get used to something they
discard it for something else until they become used to that. it is changing something
without changing anything really.
That is Canada. We fight each other all the time until someone from the outside
is critical of us then we all attack them drown the outsiders out and go back to our
original bickering with each other. Aren't we wonderful?

Canada is being overrun by people that are against work and anything that might create good paying jobs outside of the government.

It looks like we are about to run our socialist and his commie loving hangers on out of town on a rail. It would be wonderful if they were stripped, tied to it, were doused in hot tar and covered in chicken feathers - that's the American way!

TaxSlave; You say "Canada is being overrun by people who are against work"...

Who are these people?...
Perhaps People aren't against working, as much as they are sick are tired of working for nothing(which ammounts to a form of slavery)...While a wealthy, seemingly privileged few, reap an ever increasing, over abundance, of rewards off the backs of hard working "labourers".

Where do you see Canada heading in the future?..
Keeping in mind we are in "Post" industrial times..

Peaches; Who is this " socialist ", and these "commie loving hangers on" you refer to?...Harper?...Mcquinty and fellow liberals.?

Alright sick fish, I was just messing around must have forgotten y'all are talking about Canada - leaping from tree to tree! My best girl by my side...I'm a Lumberjack and I'm ok...etc. I did hear Canada's economy has improved by cutting back to 11% on social welfare programs and pushing more free market capitalism. Beyond that I am ignorant on Canada because I live on the Gulf Coast hahaha I have an excuse. No I was talking about Obama.

In truth I do not live anywhere near Canada, Chicago when I was 4 is as far north as I have ever been. Conosco mas sobre Mexico, lo siento. I suppose were I to travel through your beautiful country I would learn more about it but I think I would freeze because I think temperatures in the 50's are rather cold. Why should I have an in depth knowledge of Canada anyway? We share a long border and are friends and traiding partners. You have french seperatists in Quebec, Parts of your country is like the American west - cattle, horses, cowboys and indians. You have lovely fishing communities on the east and west coast, and further north it is more like Alaska with inuits, permafrost. You have oil and gas fields, tar sands. and large cities. You have limits on freedom of speech like the USSR, and a somewhat left of center quasi socialist government. What more do I really need to know? I'm retired and takng care of my wife and raising my teens by myself. Yes I am largely ignorant about Canada I will confess. Perhaps I will learn something on this site but one thing I am learning is that you have no sense of humor and are really not too friendly it seems. Are you one of those expatriots who evaded the draft in Vietnam? My father and brother fought there but I was just a kid, though I did deploy to Saudi Arabia - I still hold a license as an RN and a certification as a Diabetic Educator with 20years experience in the Military. and I do hold a Master's degree in Adult Health. Hey it says to refrain from personal attacks, I suppose It is ok to defend myself.

I have an idea on how to improve canada, impose a $5.50 tax on Americans entering Canada by boat or car until Romney wins and repeals it. What about the Travel bureau sending some commercials our way with beautiful cinimatography of your most scenic spots with some brief snippits of what Canada has to offer visitors , canadian musical artists I am purchasing Loreena Mckennitt albums, She's from Canada - beautiful music. Did not much care for the mannish gal singer from out west though - somehow I get the same feeling about Wayne Newton when I see her.

Wow.... you really don't know squat about Canada. You'd be better off just reading and not posting anything.


So, your father and brother were in Vietnam eh? Do you have a big party on the anniversary of My Lai?

Maybe because you're posting on a Canadian forum, in a thread about Canada no less? Just a thought.

ROFL. Have you read a lot of the comments around here??? Not only does everyone know what they're talking about, many of them claim to multiple experts in multiple areas, LOL. Not everyone, but many.

As an expert on most topics, I can easily support your theory.

I'm available for expert testimony if need be

No My brother served two tours in the Navy there, My father was a forward air controller flying an O1E Bird Dog, He never celebrated or talked about it his medals rotted out in the garage. I know in a country as large and diverse as Canada you must represent a small minority with your rudness and lack of hospitality. It is a fact that many draft dodgers did flee to Canada, leftists and hippie types who were probably pot smokers. We are well rid of some of them. There are atrocities in all wars on both sides, the vietcong skinned people alive on occasion for collaborating with us. You are giving someone who is interested in learning about and communicating with Canadians a bad impression of at least a certain percentage of the people who live in Canada. I am sure there are many who are from the center and more on the conservative side who are much more tolerant and have manners as well as a sense of humor. What is wrong with having a conversation and telling me something about your wonderful country instead of hurling insults from a political perspective? Being nice doesn't cost anything even if you agree to disagree with me about politics - eh?

That is a large part of the problem. You and the citiots that are working hard to destroy the economy might be in post industrial times but the people that work for a living and actually produce goods are still involved in industry. Look where the good wages are. Resource industries and some manufacturing. Serving fries and fancy coffees to each other produces nothing and the pay is commensurate.

We OTH were quite happy to get citizens that are not interested in killing someone just because they have a different skin color. It is people like you we do not want. How much cheap whiskey do you gulp before you make negative comments about people that smoke pot?

I'll repeat what I've said before..........."to generate money you generally have to kill something or mine something"

Who are you referring to that is interested in learning about and communicating with Canadians? It certainly isn't you, is it a friend of yours? Why not invite him to come on here?

Whisky is a poison, all alcohol is, it is also loaded with calories but I do enjoy a Miller Genuine Draft after mowing the lawn on a hot day. The colony of england is nothing I raised, but no I don't but the US cut ALL ties to England though we are now close allies.

Look, I am sorry to have offended you purely because you do not agree with my politics. I will stop hurling items if you will. I am interested really. You do have a beautiful country what point is there is personal attacks. Anticipating your next insult I will be what every you tell me that I am. Why is this site open to people from outside your country if all you can do is attack them because you disagree. Perhaps like that skit on Monty Python this is the office to enter when to have an argument - funny skit but it does not foster communication. I have learned that there are many people who simply wish to argue. Seems many on this site are like that - are they? If so I will make you happy and leave then you can chase your tails and preach to the choir in one sided political agreement instead of finding some common ground and bipartisan ship reaching across the isle to find some common agreement on some issues? If Canada is in trouble and needs improving perhaps that is one of many reasons - we are currently facing that in the United states but will overcome IF the right people are elected. In our country having full control of the presidency, Senate, and congress then locking the other party out of all negotiations until their plan was completed then shoving suggestions aside with quips like "WE WON" sit down and shut up it is our way but the highway is a dictatorship - it can and will tear a country apart. I suppose I will anticipating deleting this site with an overall bad impression of Canadians - at least those on the left side of the spectrum, this must be a leftist site so so long in advance. I will wait for the insult but will delete after reading and never return, I will imagin your high fiving with the other statists. Nah I'm outta here I won't give you the pleasure of further insulting me.

I suggest you go back and read your previous posts, if you're looking for insults. Think carefully about what you wrote. If you are interested, you have a strange way of showing it.

I still haven't heard anything about Canada...
